Last week, I only followed half of my menu plan. Out of the 4 meals listed, only 2 were served. One of those meals was Swedish Meatballs.
When I planned last week's menu, I didn't realize that we had a lot of leftovers in the fridge from the week before. There isn't any room in the freezer right now, so rather than waste the leftovers we incorporated them into the menu plan. And I'm glad we did.
The leftovers helped a lot, since I really haven't been in the mood to cook lately. I don't know if it's the weather or the lack of sleep that I've been dealing with that is affecting my feelings about cooking lately. Probably a combination of both.
Here's the plan for this week:
- scrambled eggs with spinach, onions and potatoes, Canadian bacon, toast
- crock pot ravioli, garlic bread, salad
- meatloaf, vegetable risotto, salad
- quick chicken enchiladas, refried beans, rice
I don't usually include breakfast or lunch in my menu planning since we all eat something different for those meals. If you are interested in finding out what I eat for those meals while I'm dieting, I posted some suggestions on my weight loss post: I'm Going to Lose It!
